Guam - The Legislative Committee on Education is hosting a roundtable with the Department of Education this week to address the recent breakins and vandalisms that occurred in the public schools. Speaker Judi Won Pat says her plan is to get CAPE volunteers involved.

She told KUAM News, "These individuals who volunteer we are going to expand their duties that they can go and assist and patrol school areas and reporting anything that's happening. In addition, maybe there might be individuals within the school that we can deputize and train them to be first line to report any of these incidences."

DOE officials estimate they racked up about $100,000 in facility damages for 2011 alone. The roundtable is scheduled for Tuesday at 6pm at the Guam Legislature.
